Please note that as the Area Chair of the Counselor Education master's degree program,  I am not accepting doctoral students as advisees or in a research capacity. However, I do hope to have students from both the Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology program as students in my classes.

I am very interested in understanding human development and change. I focus my readings and practice on the study of comparative approaches to counseling interventions. I am especially interested in the use of short-term approaches to counseling in educational settings. I am also pursuing training in working with relationship issues and couples in a study group of the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy, developed by Stan Tatkin, Psy.D.


Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, The University of Texas at Austin

*the role of neurobiology and attachment in emotional regulation and behavior;
*narrative therapy approaches in academic settings;
*relationship issues and couples therapy;
*short-term approaches to counseling in academic settings.
